Photos 1 and 2 are my Victorian Painted Lady Dollhouse vegetable garden.
All is orderly, rows straight, weed-free, dogs dare not enter, rabbits hide behind the scarecrow but keep their distance from the cabbages. What a fantasy!
Photo 3 and 4 are the way it really is in my backyard garden at home.
I raked up some straw and uncovered these 2 baby rabbits in a shallow depression in the soft garden soil. They were so adorable and tiny; I didn’t touch them but just observed that they must have been only hours or days old since their eyes seemed to be still sealed.
I covered them back with the straw and just let them be.
I had a few little decorative fence sections so I put them around my Romaine lettuce hoping they would block the mama rabbit.
That was just wishful thinking because she and the rest of her family just hopped right over and helped themselves.
They never bothered with asparagus, strawberries, cantaloupe, watermelon, okra, zucchini, tomatoes and blueberries so I didn’t begrudge them the Romaine.
